How did we get our name? Scroll down for that but first, a special announcement!

I’m hiking the Appalachian Trail (AT) in 2021

Special Announcement! Covid 19 and Corona Virus Update

Update: In March of 2020, because of the Covid-19 Corona Virus, the Appalachian Trail Conservancy (ATC) recommended that anyone on the trail should get off the trail and anyone not yet started, should not start the trail to protect all the small towns near the trail. Because of this, I delayed my start until March of 2021. Now, in 2021, they are again recommending hikers to delay their hikes until 2022 and they are not handing out 2021 hang tags until the CDC declares the Pandemic over. Since there are now multiple vaccines being given and we know much more on how to deal with the virus (Ventilate, Wear a Mask, Keep a 6′ distance and wash your hands), I feel safe enough to start my thru hike in March of 2021. I continue to post new videos with thoughts and gear information prior to my start. Thank you for following me.

The strange and fortunate thing is that I was able to get a 2020 Appalachian Trail hang tag sent to me for my backpack in February 2020 prior to my hike. Little did I know how valuable my hang tag would become. I have been contacted to sell mine (no way) and the ATC announced they are not, I repeat, NOT giving out 2021 hang tags because they are again recommending hikers delay their hikes to 2022. That is not happening for me. I delayed an entire year due to the ATC recommendation in 2020 and I’m not delaying another year. For Pete’s Sake, I’m OLD now and will be older in 2022.

2021 is going to be “My Year” to hike the AT. I put my 2020 ATC reservation number on my 2020 tag AND added my 2021 ATC reservation number on my tag as well. I am hoping the ATC starts passing out 2021 hang tags by the time I get to Harpers Ferry.  Hike on!

And now…How we got our name:

A long time ago, a friend and I were driving home from a week at the Oshkosh Airventure. We started talking about various business ideas and we decided that when people needed to learn or find out about a topic, we could do the research for them, formulate it into some kind of report and then give it to them. The term for the person who provides that service is an “Information Broker”. I got to thinking and all the data we would be researching was “loose data” kind of floating around out there on the web so that is why I formed the company, Loose Data Research LLC. I will still do research for those who need it. Just use the Contact menu drop down above to request our service.
